Remember that time that MIKE AITKEN and TOM DUGAN hopped in a Trans AM and traveled through Idaho and Montana in 2011?

In case you missed it, here is our most recent Stampy fork test video.
As part of our mission to make the best BMX forks possible, we continue to refine the 41-Thermal® process at all stages of manufacturing. Each step in the process is held under strict scrutiny, and we continue to examine the strength and fatigue testing methods used to evaluate our designs.
In the previous round of Stampy fork tests we blew the industry standard EN tests for bicycle forks out of the water, and yet we still couldn’t break our own fork. In fact, we had to give up after running the fork for 2,000,000 cycles and with the machine operating at its ultimate limit.
So, in order to push the tests and our forks even harder we created an updated rig design that would let us supply much more force than the last time around. With this test we doubled up the cylinders that are applying the load and ramped the force up by 25%, going from 4000 Newtons to 5000 Newtons. That’s just over half a ton! (1124 lbf per cycle). Even so, at half a million cycles we started to wonder how long our forks were going to last, and since our competitor’s forks had already been taken to failure, we decided to ramp up the load on our forks to 6000 Newtons (1349 lbf), 50% higher than the previous tests, and after over 650,000 cycles, we were finally able to break them.
It is important to note that the 41-Thermal forks not only outperformed every other model that we tested by a huge margin, but that they did so while being lighter than most of the other forks too. This is direct evidence that proper design, engineering and manufacturing are much more important factors than simply always making the part heavier in hopes of making it stronger….

Full Factory Distribution is having a warehouse sale and jam on March 7th. So if you like saving money on kick ass bike parts and want to ride our ramps, come through.
Helmets are a must. No helmet no ride.
Watch some footage of Aaron Ross, Chase Hawk, Tom Dugan, Nathan Williams and Geoff Slattery while Aaron shares some of his thoughts about filming for Etnies’ latest video.
A pool party with Chase Hawk in attendance is always a good time. This new Etnies promo delivers just that and a sick corner manual as a bonus.
Seeing as Terry is moving on from the house featured in this video, we figured it would be a good time for a RE-UP. Be sure to check out this fun video if you’ve never seen it before.
The winter’s been rough up in Montreal and to get some riding done, JF’s been hitting up his friend’s basement. This video was filmed over a weekend and mark’s JF’s first video of the year.
Join the Fox crew on a trip down south to Peru and Guatemala. This trip definitely looked like a good time!
